According to a recent press release, “Radware®, a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, released its 2017 Executive Application & Network Security Survey, which strikingly elicited that executives in the U.S. and Europe now place broad trust in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning systems, designed to protect organizations from more dynamic pernicious cyber threats in addition to other key findings. Each year, Radware publishes the findings and analysis of its information security industry survey. Designed for the entire security community, the Global Application & Network Security Report helps in understanding the threat landscape, potential impact on businesses, levels of preparedness, emerging threats and predictions for the coming year.”
The release goes on, “Complementing that research is Radware’s annual executive survey. In Q2 of this year, Radware conducted a global survey of C-suite executives. The goal: to understand their greatest business concerns; evolving and preferred technological and staffing techniques for preparedness; compliance with and desired oversight with respect to governmental regulations and directional attitudes when pursuant to cyber security. This year’s research revealed important global trends as well as intriguing perceptions and nuances among U.S. and European executives.”
It continues, “Among the findings of the 2017 executive survey… This year’s executive survey supports the assertion that security automation has now reached an inflection point—with about four in five (81%) of the executives reported having already or recently implemented more reliance on automated solutions. Some 57% of executives report trusting automated systems as much or more than humans to protect their organizations. Two in five (38%) executives indicated that within two years, automated security systems would be the primary resource for managing cyber security.”
